Emerging Technologies is the premier arena to demonstrate novel interactive technologies to a large audience, inspire, be amazed, and experience the future. SIGGRAPH Asia Emerging Technologies 2021 are planned to take place both in physical and virtual venues, with the theme: "Awaken Our Bodies."

Making working and experiential prototypes is a crucial step towards novel technological innovations. Therefore, the Emerging Technologies program plays a vital role within SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia in driving the development of research communities and to make a great impact on the public.

Be inspired by presentations about the concepts behind these innovations and understand the research outcomes on interactive technologies. The goal of Emerging Technologies is to gather and show such submissions as novel interactive technologies that have possibilities to bring benefits, usefulness, or comfort, into our future lives.

Interactive technology has been one of the most important inseparable wheels of SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia, and the Emerging Technologies program has played a vital role in driving the development of research communities to pursue technological innovations and to make a great impact on the public. Some of the accepted Emerging Technologies works will be chosen as "Emerging Technologies Prize" by the Emerging Technologies program committee members and reviewers at the event venue. The quality of work, how they are presented virtually, and how attractive attendees view the works are criteria upon which each work will be judged. The prize ceremony will take place right after the Q&A sessions.

Program Schedule:

  • 19 Emerging Technologies were selected out of 46 submissions from all over the world
  • Out of which, 13 Emerging Technologies will have physical exhibits onsite in Hall E, Tokyo International Forum from 15 - 17 December 2021, 10am - 6pm JST/GMT+9 daily. All 19 presentations will be accessible on-demand in the virtual platform from 6 December 2021.
